This is the wine conceived and desired by Vittorio Fiore after long
years of study, thought, and working experience and it is the result
of an exceptional pairing and synergy: Sangiovese and the Ruffoli
vineyards in Greve in Chianti. The results of this synergy - the
grapes harvested in the Carbonaione vineyard – are worked with
passion and dedication by Vittorio Fiore and his son Jurij in order
to obtain a wine of great power and elegance, one capable of
expressing in all of its richness the terroir in which it is born.
